Reneé S. Frazier, CEO of Healthy Memphis Common Table, received the National Association of Health Service Executives’ (NAHSE) Senior Health Services Executive of the Year Award during their 23rd Annual Conference Business Meeting & Exhibition in Henderson, Nev. (Oct. 12-14).
Frazier has been a member of NAHSE since 1984 and has held numerous positions within the organization. She is also a founding member of the Baltimore, Md. chapter. During the national conference, she was also elected National Secretary.
“I am extremely honored and grateful to receive this distinction. For me, it validates much of the hard work I have done throughout my career in this industry,” said Fraizer.
“I believe in NAHSE and its mission. I have witnessed how it can provide a vehicle for African Americans and other minorities to effectively participate in the design, direction and delivery of quality health care to all people. Networking and professional development are an integral part of any executive’s roadmap to success, and NAHSE is a wonderful outlet for both.”
Frazier has worked in the health care industry for over 30 over years. She relocated to Memphis in 2009, after accepting her current position. Before joining Healthy Memphis Common Table, she served as the regional senior vice president and executive officer of VHA Pennsylvania, the Pittsburgh division of VHA Inc., a national hospital alliance of more than 2,200 health care organizations across the U.S. She has also served as a vice president of BlueCross BlueShield of Maryland, chief operating officer for Liberty Medical Center and Lutheran Health Care Corporation Baltimore, MD., and a strategic consultant for Community Health Centers in Maryland.
